Betty Boop: Dizzy Dishes (1930)




Betty's first apperance (1930) as a Helen Kane-like Caricature who is perform's on stage for bimbo she performs in somewhere which looks simuler to the Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem , only problem is she is that Betty is nameless and is a anthropomorphic French poodle. Betty's floppy poodle ears later became hoop earrings in the Betty Boop cartoon series, and her black poodle nose becomes a girl's button-like nose. Betty's voice is provided by Margie Hines in this Cartoon Short. like all the Betty Boop series this is Public domain. Uploaded by BoopBoopaddoop...

Subject: Betty's first apperance
Betty's first apperance She is nameless & is some sort of canine and is obviously a Caricature of plump 1920s singer & actress Helen Kane. obviously from her first apperance she becomes more populer her male counter-part bimbo the dog & ends up gets her own series. Margie Hines provided the voice for Betty in the first cartoons.

The perceived wisdom is that she was still part-dog and the combination was rather ugly.

She's not as carefully drawn as in later cartoons so a bit freakish in her facial expressions, but still fully formed as Betty despite that she has puppy-ears, all of the cafe's patrons being animals. She's more dog-like here than ever again, but even here it could be missed except for those ears. way she moves her legs & when she screws up her face she's horridly ugly although she looks simuler to her humanself just without the button nose & long ears.
